We are a broad-based institute that offers a wide range of accredited Bachelor's degree courses.
Elsevier ranks us in the top three of best Dutch universities of applied sciences. Students value the quality of the education we provide, the expertise of our teaching staff and our personal approach. Also, we have established Windesheim Honours College: a study concept for excellent students.
One of our strengths is a personal approach. Students work in small groups and our lecturers are coaches as well. They challenge our students to develop into confident professionals.
